Foxy Brown. This hip, violent, fast-moving film firmly established Pam Grier as the goddess of Blaxploitation. She plays Foxy, a toughened woman living in a drug-plagued L.A. ghetto who goes on a one woman mission of vengeance after her undercover cop boyfriend (Terry Carter) is shot down in the street. The badass lass goes undercover herself, as a call girl for the evil mistress of the drug cartel (Kathryn Loder), and with the help of a neighbourhood vigilante committee, wreaks some hell on the bad guys. Chock full of sex, nudity and rampant violence, this is certainly not for children, baby. Highlights include a lesbian bar brawl and Foxy’s sexual belittling of an old white judge. Co-stars include Antonio Fargas, Sid Haig, and Sally-Ann Stroud. Don’t miss the crazily coloured opening credits, which feature Grier boogying down in all sorts of super-sexy outfits to the Willie Hutch title track (Hutch also composed the groovy funk score). This was directed by cult icon Jack Hill, who also scored with Grier in the similar COFFY released the previous year.
